[IPython-dev] [matplotlib-devel] IPython proposal: getting rid of "ipython -pylab\-wthread\etc."

After playing a bit more, I have a ctypes based prototype that can set
PyOS_InputHook in an appropriate way for wx 2.9 (trunk). I think it is
possible to have a ctypes based version that would work for all the major
GUI toolkits that we could ship with IPython until the transition is over
(i.e., everyone is using a GUI toolkits recent enough).
BUT. I need to begin to narrow the GUI toolkits and versions that we will
The total number of possibilities (for testing, etc.) is approximately:
(number of OSs~3) x (number of GUI toolkits~qt4/wx/gtk) x (number of
supported versions of each GUI)
Because the first 2 terms are pretty fixed, I want to bring sanity to the
picture by keeping the 3rd term as small as possible. So, here is a
What versions of what GUI toolkits do we realistically need to support
moving forward (today and beyond)? By this, I mean that:
"unsupported" = older versions of GUIs toolkits that will have to use older
versions of IPython.
"supported" = versions of GUIS that will be able to use the PyOS_InputHook
approach in newer releases of IPython.
